PSG well and truly varnished


By: Manu Tournoux

While some assure that PSG has every reason to be wary of Real Sociedad, Daniel Riolo has another reading of the draw for the round of 16 of the Champions League.

Bayern Munich, Real Madrid or Manchester City: PSG had everything to fear from the draw for the knockout stages of the Champions League. In the end, the French champions inherited Real Sociedad, presented as the weakest team in the top eight in the group.

But for some, the San Sebastian team is undoubtedly the team that offered the most beautiful football. Enough to invite Parisians to exercise caution. For Daniel Riolo, the draw remains no less ” very good “. “It’s the famous story of the jackpot, he said at the microphone of RMC. Obviously it was the team that everyone wanted to take in the first group. Obviously it’s a very good draw. That doesn’t mean they’re going to wander but yes, on paper PSG must win but it’s still football. »

“You can be lucky to draw Real Sociedad, you can be lucky in the quarter-finals by drawing the winner of Dortmund-PSV and you would find yourself in the semi-finals, he added. When you have draws, you have a share of success. What represented the disaster for PSG for a long time was not that they were beaten in the round of 16 by Real, Bayern or Barça, it was the way they lost. »
